Republic Live Executive Director Shannon McNevan had this to say, "We couldn't be more excited to finally launch the name of our new festival as the WayHome Music and Arts and announce this inspiring line-up.
"Sam Smith is one of the hottest and most exciting new artists in the world right now, so it's awesome to see acts like him join Kendrick Lamar and Alt-J on our inaugural bill as Canada's international destination music festival.
"It's a testament to how great of an entertainment market southern Ontario is. A huge differentiator for any festival we do is the on-site experience and amazingly deep sense of community that people feel there.
"To that end, we're including tent camping or parking with our ticket offerings to encourage people to camp out with their pals and really immerse themselves in the experience."
